LaSalle Hotel Properties and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust have signed a $5.2 billion merger. This transaction might have become a bidding war if Blackstone Group had stayed in the race. Blackstone had been courting LaSalle for months but bowed out after LaSalle went with Pebblebrook’s most recent offer. Blackstone was given a 4-day period to put in a higher bid. Within hours, the private equity giant declined to rebid, allowing a Pebblebrook-LaSalle merger to move forward.
